We are coaches, athletes, and adventurers with well over a decade of experience in both the disciplines of movement and the instruction of them. We’ve refined that experience and knowledge into specialized obstacle-based classes and programming. We begin with fundamentals achievable by all, adapting and advancing them to fit age, individual interest, and developing skill level.
ROAM was built to be a home and waypoint for movement-minded adventure seekers with a passion for leading active lifestyles. We welcome all those who seek the same, whether you’re living in that way already, or just starting on the path.
The founders of ROAM are pioneers of movement and exploration; keystones in the New England Parkour community, responsible for starting some of the first programs in the region.
We believe movement is the fundamental way in which we interact with the world. Learning to move—to use your body and all it’s capable of—shifts the world from something you’re simply an observer of, to something you’re an active participant in. It is one thing to walk through a forest, and another to sit in the eaves of a tree you’ve climbed to watch the sun sink below the canopy.
We are a team of athletes who want to move and move well for as long as possible. We train—and as a result instruct—with a mindset of controlled, deliberate progression. We teach to the ability of the individual and guide their growth with sustainability and longevity at the heart of our method.
Our bodies are the tools with which we move through our world; Parkour is the knowledge of how to use them.
Ninja, Obstacle Course Racing, Acrobatics: if movement is a part of it, Parkour is at its heart. It is a discipline of learning to move and adapt to new environments—be it an old-growth forest, an urban landscape, or a playground with your little one at the lead.
American Ninja Warrior is a sport originating from the Japanese television show ‘Sasuke’. Since its arrival here in the States, it’s grown from its humble entertainment roots into a thriving fitness and competition circuit. Ninja Warrior focuses on navigating unique obstacles using specialized skills, with the goal of improving both speed of completion and mastery of technique.
